Marriage Prayer – Giving Up “Me” for “We”
Dear Heavenly Father,
We’re two different people, each with a different set of ideas. We have our own expectations. We have our own needs. We interpret things differently, and react in our own unique way.
Help us to keep the lines of communication open while we’re growing together as one. Give us a heart of understanding that’s open to change.
Help us to express our needs in ways that aren’t selfish, demanding, or rude. And help us to listen.
It’s natural to want your own way. It’s easier to live for ourselves than it is to die for each other. But our wants, our needs, our desires, and our pride should never be more important than the needs that we share as a couple.
Give us a desire for our marriage that is stronger than self-centered pride. Grant us the strength to give up who we were for the sake of our marriage, and above anything else–for the sake of Your glory and grace.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. – Romans 12:1-2, KJV
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. – Romans 12:1-2, NIV
